We are getting a further advance on our home loan from Aldermore as we wish to carry out improvements to our property in West Croydon. Are we obliged to select a high street West Croydon solicitor on the Aldermore conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?
Aldermore do not ordinarily appoint a member of their conveyancing panel to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Aldermore conveyancing panel.
Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Coventry BS. West Croydon conveyancing solicitors are appointed. How long does it take for Coventry BS to send the offer to the lawyer?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Coventry BS conducted the survey? Have you advised Coventry BS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
Nationwide have agreed my home loan in principle, my offer on a house in West Croydon has been agreed to, now what?
The estate agent will wish to know who your solicitors are (be sure the conveyancing practitioners are on the bank’s approved list). Call up Nationwide or the broker and complete any appropriate documentation. Nationwide will instruct a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or owners to arrange a time for the valuation to occur. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes on average a week for the mortgage offer to be issued. Nationwide will issue the offer to you and your lawyers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in West Croydon.
I am selling our house in West Croydon and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any high street West Croydon lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers are using an internet conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in West Croydon. We have lived in West Croydon for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to get clarification that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same ailment)
I have a 4 bedroom Victorian property in West Croydon. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Britannia. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the matching address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in West Croydon and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the situation with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the purchase.
I am looking for a flat up to £195,000 and found one close by in West Croydon I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in West Croydon suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
